BIQ Guide To Horror Clichés: Everyone drinking the same beer.

What kind of inbred nonsense is a social gathering where everyone drinks the same beer?

It's the curse of product placement deals that has allowed the cliché, of everyone drinking the same lager, to germinate. Of course, this cliché isn't exclusively limited horror movies, but the horror genre is the proud domain of the very worst example of this cliché; My Bloody Valentine

In My Bloody Valentine everyone, everywhere, drinks Moosehead. It's like some sort of alternate universe where Moosehead is the only beer that exists. Holy crap, now that I think about it in those terms, it's just occurred to me how horrific that movie really is.

  1. Or just as bad, when someone goes up to the bar and orders "a beer." And the bartender is never like, "We've got 50 different beers on tap, which one do you want, dipshit?" No, he just pours them their pint without blinking an eye.
